Ive only ridden the full susp bike 3 times, so its hard give a full comaprison. The FS doesnt leave my lower back in pain, but I dunno if thats cause of the suspension, or the riding position, or combo thereof (Had str8 bars on the F2k, have risers on the FS). The F2k is more responsive in the technical stuff....In short, pros and cons to both....magzx12r said:I plan to get back into road and off road riding when I stop working so much. I am off the last two weeks of the year. How do you like that full suspension compared to the hardtail you had?
